#READTHIS #GOT #GameofThrones #HouseoftheDragon @InsightEditions

Last December, we were pleased with this television series, so we delved into the book! When we heard about this fascinating companion to the series, we thought it would be a nice coffee table book and an inspirational art piece. However, it far exceeded our expectations. If you have never professionally worked behind the scenes in television, this wide world of the small screen will be opened up to you and the secrets are unveiled championing the brilliance of this series. It is indeed rare for a prequel or a sequel to live up to the original, but in this case it did.  This work was considered by those that were huge fans and those that thought they'd like the show but hadn't seen it yet and even some that were not familiar with this show in particular, and we all concluded that the imaginative, detailed extravaganza is a huge selling point for the show and we want to go back and see it all again....on a rainy day! (Not today....enjoy the spring of February, a rarity here!)

House of the Dragon by Insight Editions of Simon and Schuster is Highly Recommended.
